Athletes are getting caught out there especially when they come to New York for some reason. Jason Kidd inked a deal with the Knicks just four days ago to be their point guard and now he's already in trouble with the law after being arrested for driving under the influence yesterday.
The NY Daily News revealed that he was alone in the car when cops came & that reports of his wife being in the car with him are false:
The 39-year-old basketball star slammed into a wooden utility pole, snapping it in two near his Water Mill home about 2 a.m. His knucklehead antics knocked out cable service to customers of his new boss — Cablevision and Knicks honcho James Dolan. The NBA veteran, who was alone in the white 2010 Cadillac Escapade, suffered minor injuries in the crash near his $5.9 million home. He jumped the curb on Cobb Road, hit the pole and then the SUV careened another 20 feet or so. It ended up in a wooded area. Kidd was treated at Southampton Hospital and then hauled off to court where he faces a misdemeanor. He was released on his own recognizance after his Sunday morning arraignment. “Jason has pleaded not guilty to a DWI charge and awaits further court proceedings,” said Kidd’s lawyer, Ed Burke Jr. Kidd attended the “Fostering A Legacy” benefit with his wife, former fashion model Porschla Coleman, at the private East Hampton estate of William Nuti, CEO of NCR and Chairman of Sprint.
From there, Kidd and Coleman headed to nearby SL East, a spin-off nightclub of the popular SL club in the Meatpacking District. Coleman left the club — known for pricey bottle service and topless dancing patrons on weekends — without Kidd, who sources said was dancing and downing vodka. A source insisted that Kidd’s handler was driving the Escalade when they left the club. But cops said Kidd was alone in the SUV when he crashed.
